Kate O'Donnell at the Pankhurst Centre
Join us for the latest in a series of talks by some of this year's Strong Manchester Women at The Pankhurst Centre,
Each year Manchester City Council celebrates International Women’s Day with their Strong Manchester Women campaign. The campaign recognises the achievements of some of Manchester’s women, and produces portraits which appear on billboards and posters across the city.
We're thrilled that some of these amazing women will be coming to the centre to discuss their work and their experience of the campaign. And they'll be talking against the backdrop of the original portraits, which are here on display at The Pankhurst Centre until June 2019.
On June 9th, we welcome Kate O' Donnell, Artistic Director of Trans Creative
Kate O’Donnell is the founder of pioneering company Trans Creative, who make award-winning theatre and curate the Manchester trans arts festival, Trans Vegas, where trans people get to tell their own stories and be visible on their own terms. Trans Creative uses creativity to reach communities and organisations across the country, sharing trans experience to help them grow and become better trans allies. Based up north, it hopes to change the world – one trans story at a time. Kate says, “We want everyone to be as excited about being trans as we are!”
